Launch of the the Harlem River Bridges Access Plan!

NYC DOT is preparing to launch a one-year, community-driven planning process to increase safety and mobility for pedestrians and bicyclists traveling between the Bronx and Manhattan across the Harlem River. We will lead a series of community planning workshops, starting in June, to develop a planning document, the Harlem River Bridges Access Plan. We would love for you to join us at one of our upcoming workshops—and, if possible, to help us spread the word!

Our first series of workshops, during which we will review existing conditions and solicit feedback on transportation priorities, will be held on the following dates:

Harlem River Bridges Access Plan Workshops: 

Bridges South of Macombs Dam

  • June 15- 6:30pm @ Taino Towers (221 E. 122nd St, Manhattan)
  • June 16- 6:30pm @ Hostos Community College, Savoy Multipurpose Room (457 Grand Concourse, Bronx)

Bridges North of Macombs Dam

  • June 22- 6:30pm @ Wilson Major Morris Community Center (459 W. 152nd Street, Manhattan)
  • June 23- 6:30pm @ Lehman College, Faculty Dining Room/Music Building (250 Bedford Park Blvd West, Bronx)

The Harlem River Bridges Access Plan will describe community preferences for increasing access to jobs, schools, and recreational amenities on both sides of the river, and will serve as a tool to guide future investment and seek funding for future transportation projects.
